Ilana is a licensed speech-language pathologist who has a passion for helping children learn to express themselves to the fullest. She began her career in New York City in sub-acute facilities working with adults with a range of diagnoses. In 2013, Ilana made the transition to the West Coast and back to children, where she knew she left her heart. She now has extensive experience working as a home-based, and clinic-based pediatric therapist treating children from 0-18 years of age. She specializes in treating young children, ages birth to three, with communication delays and disorders.

Ilana attended the Hanen “More Than Words” Certification Workshop and believes in working closely with families to provide personalized therapy that meets the specific needs of each child. She also recently completed a continuing education workshop targeting Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing, a treatment approach for Childhood Apraxia of Speech.

Ilana received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Michigan and her master’s degree in communicative sciences and disorders from New York University. She is a certified member of the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA), and the California Speech-Language Hearing Association (CSHA).
